1983 el camino, pasenger window suddenly quit working from either switch. How do I troubleshoot the problem.


the way to check the window motor is take the panal off and with two long wires from the battery un hook the motor plug and place the ground on first and with the hot wire place in on one prong and iff nothing happens put the hot wire on the other prong. that is how you bypass the switch. but i think your window motor is bad

Did you recently put wider than stock tires on your car? The wiring harness for the rear lights runs down the outside of the drivers side frame rail, wider tires will rub on the harness and cause damage to it and subsequent light failures.

Are 1983 el camino bumpers the same as 1983 caballero


Yes. GM made all Chevrolet El Camino's and GMC Caballero's excactly the same, save for badge and trim packages. You can interchange parts with El Camino/Malibu/Monte Carlo cars and some S-10 trim peices will fit. But all three Cars will interchange interior parts. as for the bumpers, Only El camino/Malibu/Caballero will fit without modifying them. A simple Bolt-On and go.

Need to open up the steering column on 1983 El Camino for igniti


Saw, It sounds like the accuator rod from the ignition lock cylinder to the ignition switch is broken or disconnected.
If you look near the base of the steering column you wll see the ignition switch mounted to the steering column. As you turn the key you should see the rod move up and down, if not, you will have to disassemble to figure out why.
Good luck, let me know what you find.
Regards,

I have a 1983 Royal Knight SS. Had the same problem. Had my wiper motor and washer pump replaced. works like a dream now. replaced my original combination turn signal wiper switch on steering column and now have good working intermittent wipers. It is great to see driving in the rain now. Jackson  in ATL
